McNett, Ian
The report summarizes the activities of a seminar designed and conducted by the Career Education Policy Project (CEPP) of the Institute for Educational Leadership (IEL) and attended by 27 career educators. The seminar provided an insight into lobbying for education, with bureaucrats, congressional members and staff aides, lobbyists, education association repreentatives, journalists, and independent observers of the Washington policy scene speaking to the participants. An outlined summary represents highlights of the seminar, including Federal role, the current scene, future trends, the policy scene, working the systems, and the career education picture. Seven chapters discuss conference proceedings and include: (1) Introduction: "Worth More Than Any College Course," describing seminar topics and participants; (2) A Limited Role, discussing Federal role in educational policy; (3) Some Current Realities, examining economic and fiscal procedures; (4) The Ripple of the Future, discussing coming changes; (5) The Policy Maze, examining the executive branch, Congress, education associations, and the courts; (6) Working the System, offering hints for influencing educational policy; and (7) Evaluation: "How I Feel A Part of American Government," examining participant evaluation of the seminar. A career education policy project profile by IEL, a schedule of seminar events, and a listing of participants are appended. (LH)
